With full and heavy hearts we said goodbye to our sweet Tofu on Sunday. Tofu lived a full life of 9.5 years and charmed everyone he met. A free ranging creature who lived his last 3 years completely blind, he was a lover, a fighter and little champion. He loved cuddles and was the most chill rabbit I ever met. His favourite foods included carrots, oats, dandelion and parsley. He had been unwell on Sunday and our plan if he didn’t improve, was to take him to the vet on Monday morning. He has always improved after a few hours. After a sunny Sunday of cuddles and hanging out with us and friends all day in the garden, in the evening, about 7pm, on our bed, on his favourite blanket, he suddenly squealed and he was gone. He has been a big part of our lives for almost 10 years and will be greatly missed. Binky free little one.
The Koala and I are back from an epic 3 days at Splore. There was mud, rain and sunshine. I think we’ll take a few days to reset. Click here to see more editions of Tofu Tuesday.

This morning, I asked Tofu the bunny what he wanted to do for Tofu Tuesday. He suggested it Tongues Out Tuesday (which you should totally Google). Thanks Tofu for being such a good sport! Being so cute is very thirsty work! Click here to see more editions of Tofu Tuesday.

These adorable beaded vegetables are a gift from my friend Vanessa all the way from Guatemala. Tofu especially approves of the carrot. Vanessa has spent a year volunteering full time in an orphanage in Guatemala and is now wrangling huge spiders and headed to Nicaragua via El Salvador. Vanessa is a rock star.

Welcome back to Tofu Tuesday! Tofu spent Christmas and New Years at my parents’ house so we had a little hiatus. I got a huge mug for Christmas. Every day I fill it with coffee and plan to take over the world. It’s going to be a great year. Click here to see more editions of Tofu Tuesday.

We have a new office set-up at home. Instead of one big table, The Koala and I now have a desk each and I love my set-up. Seriously, I get up early each morning so I can sit at my new workspace. It’s the little things. P.S. How many bunnies can you see? Click here to see more editions of Tofu Tuesday.

We had the pleasure of trying some of Serious Popcorn’s newest flavour: Coconut and Vanilla. With a light flavour a hint of salt and not too sweet, this is great guilt-free snacking. Co-founder of Stolen Rum (see previous Tofu Tuesday: Stolen edition here), Roger Holmes now peddles organic popcorn in three flavours and cutesy packaging. Serious Popcorn are serious about being organic, non GMO, dairy and gluten free and all ingredients 100% traceable from farm to bag. No rabbits were involved in the serious task of snack tasting.

We’re getting our roof replaced so during the day, we’re keeping Tofu inside so he’s out of the way of building hazards. After the workday though, when everyone has gone home, Tofu enjoys a snooze in the back yard. I’m pretty sure Tofu the bunny does not consider himself a prey animal, but a master of his domain.

Our good friend Si from Cracked Ink delivered this skull recently. I love buying art and even more so when it’s art by people we love! Check out his website here and his Instagram here if you like this whimsical brand of character art. Tofu investigates. Click here to see more editions of Tofu Tuesday.
We couldn’t leave Waiheke without a souvenir, especially as Waiheke is home of swoon-worthy Thea Ceramics. The Koala got me this an early birthday present. Rabbit approved. Click here to see more editions of Tofu Tuesday.
